Update: Sony has officially released Sony Xperia 1 Professional Editon in Japan
Today, Sumahoinfo reported that they have recently found a new model of the Sony mobile phone with model number “J9150”. A Sony mobile phone model “J9150” has been found in the list of compatible models in the Google Play store. According to the list, this device is Sony Xperia 1 Professional Editon.
So far, as of now three models of the Sony Xperia 1 mobile phone have been confirmed and they come with the following model numbers respectively: “J8110”, “J8170” and “J9110”. This trend of model names also conveys the same information and confirms that “J9150” should also be a Sony Xperia 1 device.
Sumahoinfo said that the 5G version of the Xperia phone has been confirmed, but if it is named Sony Xperia 1 Professional Editon, then it is too “natural”. If this model really exists, it should come with an upgrade of hardware such as processors and cameras.
Although the existence of Sony Xperia 5G compatible prototype has been confirmed at the MWC 2019 event, frankly, it is very unlikely that it will be named as “Professional Edition”. The current naming scheme suggests some hardware upgrades, even though we don’t have any information available regarding its core configurations.
Talking about the specs, Xperia 1 handsets comes with 6.5 inches QHD+ OLED display with a resolution of 1644 x 3840 pixels. The display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 6 protection. The handset is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor and a 6 GB RAM. The device offers a storage option of 128 GB and runs on out of the box Android 9 Pie.
Xperia 1 Professional Edition sports a triple 12 MP rear cameras and an 8 MP selfie shooter. The handset is backed up by a 3330 mAh non-removable battery that comes with 18 W fast charging support. Along with this, all other essential connectivity options are available.
